I recently changed my theme from one custom theme to another custom theme.
There were previously pages that used template files (i.e., "Blog" page uses Blog template) and now that I've changed themes the pages are not redirecting as usual.
I tried importing the old data and then each page was created twice (i.e., Blog (with permalink blog) and Blog (with permalink blog-2)).
I've tried deleting both pages and choosing to deleted them permanently.
I also tried re-creating the page using the template file (naming it "Blog" with permalink blog), but I continue to get the error:
Index of /blog
Apache Server Port 80
It seems that WP is directing to the folder /blog instead of the page with the permalink blog.
If I change the title of the page (i.e., "Test" with permalink test) and apply the template file the issue resolves. But I would like to keep the same links as the previous design.
.htaccess issue or WordPress issue?
